HUNGER’s MVP of the week

Welcome to HUNGER’s Most Valuable Player, the place to find the best things to buy, watch, do or listen to each week. Forget about the hype, we want to separate what’s hot, what’s not, and what needs to be on your radar…

As the heatwave continues it’s only right that we keep the summer essentials coming. This week, New Era is providing protection from the continuous scorching temperatures with their classic 9TWENTY caps. The vintage adjustable cap comes with a curved visor and unstructured crown, providing comfort and protection. Coming in a variety of colourways, including dark green and stone, these iconic hats are most certainly a must-have for this season.

Now that we’ve got the headwear sorted, you’ll need a fresh pair of kicks to match. Luckily for you, Ellesse has revealed their new capsule collection in collaboration with Instagram sensation Franklin Boateng of King Of Trainers. A standout in the collection is a new take on the iconic Ellesse ‘Tanker’ tennis shoe. Inspired by the two-tone blue Ellesse tennis kits of the 1980s, the ‘Tanker’ is available in a dual colour combination of left shoe in light blue and right shoe in dark blue. Other items in the stylish six-piece collection include a tracksuit jacket and pant set, polo shirt, and shorts and t-shirt co-ord. The collection will launch on July 30th and will be able to purchase, here

Sadly, there can only be one true MVP and this week it’s Dickies’ varsity-inspired New Prep collection. The legendary workwear brands collection features pieces for both men and women and takes inspiration from vintage sportswear, archival menswear and club uniforms. Featured in the collection are iconic Dickies silhouettes, reworked to feature suiting details, structured tailoring, college checks and varsity artworks offered in classic and new seasonal colorways. Key styles include the Bakerhill Shirt Union Springs Jacket, which is Dickies take on the classic varsity jacket and the classic button-down Westover Shirt with contrasting front panel detail.
